Your kids are even bigger nature lovers than you are? Then these seven hikes and two bike tours are just right for you. On well-developed and family-friendly tours you will discover the beautiful landscapes around Nuremberg together. The activities include caves, forest adventure trails, children's farms and observation towers. The best thing about our tours: you can reach them all comfortably by bus and train.

On our seven hikes we take you through the varied landscapes around Nuremberg. Explore caves and river valleys in Franconian Switzerland and take a journey back in time to the Middle Ages in ancient castles. Stroll along the Altmühlsee and observe the water birds on the bird island. Just a hop away from Nuremberg is the Fürth city forest with its forest adventure trail and wild boar enclosure. And at Lauf an der Pegnitz you hike together through the wildly romantic gorge of the Bitterbach.

If you prefer to ride a bicycle, you should take a closer look at our two bike tours. One tour takes you from Altdorf over meadows and through forests along the Schwarzach to Feucht. The second bike tour meanders around the wide Lake Rothsee and through the woods around the Roth — both wonderful discovery tours for the whole family.

With only one ticket you can reach all tours with the bus and train lines in the VGN. So you have even more time in your recreational time and are sustainable and climate-friendly outdoors.
